Publisher's Summary

They call me a slut. Maybe I am. Sometimes I do things I despise. Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan. With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take. He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note. When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything. I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.

And my teacher.

My favorite book of all time - even better in audio 🔥🔥🔥

This book is so beautifully written. It literally grabs you on page 1 and hooks you. You won’t want to stop listening. It’s like poetry for your soul. I love taboo so this was right up my alley. Hot teacher who falls for a student, yes please! Its real, It’s heartbreaking, it’s love, it’s passion, it’s such an amazing story that you never want to end. I will be listening to it again even though I just finished it. The narrators for Emeric and Ivory were utterly PERFECT. I can’t think of anyone who would be better. Sooooooo good. I give this book 100 stars and all the recommendations. If you like taboo this is for you. It is nuclear hot and yet such a beautiful tale of two lovers that the world says shouldn’t be together. A beautiful soul deep beautiful love. Don’t think about it, just one click. NOW!

Utterly engrossing

Characters are well developed and defined from the beginning. The book is so intimate and feels so sexy that the scenes are that much more intense but Ava and Tad take it to another level- they prove that narration really is an art. Couldn’t be more satisfied with this book and the narration

✫✫ 4 Stars ✫✫

I had no idea what this was even about when I started am I glad because I’ll be honest I might have put it off for a later date if I had known. I don’t say that because it has anything that bothers me in it but because I have to be in the mood for high drama and I would have just assumed this would be exactly that. Thankfully it wasn’t, well it was but not in the way I expected which is what I enjoyed so much about this book! I spent the whole book waiting for the big reveal and I’m so glad it wasn’t as BIG as I expected. Yes that is vague but I’m trying not to spoil it by explaining what I liked the most lol. This book is one you start and finish in the same day, it’s very fast and never really slowed down. The sex was hot, the story line hard and the characters were great! And here is the kicker for anyone who knows me.... it’s insta-love/lust and I didn’t even care after a couple chapters. If an author can make me feel insta-love then they have done a great job because it’s really a hard no for me normally. I can’t wait for more books on audio by the author!

The narration was great, Ava Erickson & Tad Branson were cast very well for this book!

Intensity That Resonated

From beginning to end, the characters in Dark Notes had an intensity that resonated through the audiobook and into my soul.

The pain and suffering, the need and desire... all of it was expressed so vividly through the words and then brought to life even more realistically through the amazing narration of Ava and Tad.

The student/teacher story has been told but Pam Godwin took such a different route that you will not be disappointed in this book, there was enough drama to keep you completely raptured the entire book.

Pierce-your-soul good

I have been in a constant state of book hangover for weeks after finishing one of the best books I’ve ever read and nothing could pull me out until Dark Notes. The depth of character, sensuality, passion, danger and devotion between H&H were intriguing. This is definitely a book I will come back to again and again to rediscover the love a strong young woman who has every reason to be weak and the devoted and gentle love of a dangerous and dominant man.

Total listening bliss!

From the first to last word this is a rivetting, exciting and brilliant read. Listening is a complete joy. Ava Erickson and Tad Branson capture Ivory and Emerick perfectly, bringing the words to marvellous life. Not to be missed and a definite favourite!

Listening brings this book to life - loved it

I read this book in 2016 and gave it a five star review on goodreads. Having only just started listening to audible I decided to listen to Darknotes and wow, listening to this book bought the characters to life in a way I could not do justice when I read it myself. Great narration and I loved Emeric’s voice.
